Duties and Responsibilities

The mission of UNODC is to contribute to the achievement of security and justice for all by making the world safer from crime, drugs, and terrorism. UNODC has the mandate to support Member States in strengthening justice systems with the objectives to (i) better serve and protect children; and (ii) to prevent and respond to violence against children.
The mandate and role of UNODC in providing assistance in the areas of violence against children, justice for children and protection of children from terrorism have been reaffirmed throughout the years. In 2015, UNODC launched its Global Programme to End Violence against Children (Global Programme to END VAC). The Programme has been the vehicle to ensure policy and technical assistance coherence within UNODC in the area of violence against children in the field of crime prevention and criminal justice.
Under the Global Programme to END VAC, in 2016, UNODC began to work on Preventing and Responding to Violence against Children by Terrorist and Violent Extremist Groups, delivering technical assistance activities to over 35 countries in different regions of the world and has focused on multi-disciplinary capacity-building. Within this project, UNODC developed and launched a Training Package composed of four complementary publications. In addition, in 2019, UNODC launched the UNODC Roadmap on the Treatment of Children Associated with Terrorist and Violent Extremist Groups, which summarizes relevant guidance for action in the areas of prevention; rehabilitation and reintegration; justice responses, by proposing selected recommendations. Further information on the Global Programme to END VAC and its achievements are accessible at: https://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/justice-and- prison-reform/endvac.html
On the basis of this guidance UNODC has been providing technical assistance to countries in 6 regions of the world on various aspects of this phenomenon.

The Global Programme to END VAC foresees activities at global, regional and national levels, which requires donor relations, elaboration of internal and external reports, a monitoring and evaluation framework, and development project proposals to secure additional resources for the continued implementation of the projects developed under the programme.

The consultant will provide his/her knowledge and expertise in the area of resource mobilization with a wide variety of potential donors.
The Consultant will be based at the UNODC HQ in Vienna and will also work under the overall guidance of the of the Coordinator of the Global Programme to End Violence against Children (GLOZ43) and the Chief of the Justice Section.
